The Story of She-Ra is the first Princess of Power minicomic. It was packaged with the She-Ra figure.
The Sorceress has a nightmare about Hordak stealing a baby called Adora. A glowing sword appears and guides her to a portal within Castle Grayskull. She sends He-Man through it to find this woman. On Etheria, Adora is fleeing from the evil Catra on her horse Spirit. She reaches the Crystal Castle, transforms into She-Ra with the help of the sword and fights Catra. He-Man arrives and helps She-Ra to scare the evil one away. The power swords recognize each other and the Sorceress explains that He-Man and She-Ra are brother and sister.
- Despite the comic being supposed to be an origin story, when Adora appears she already has the sword and knows how to use it to transform.
